Pueblo Pottery and Embroidery Demonstration
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
with Michael Bancroft (Ohkay Owingeh) and Shawn Tafoya (Santa Clara)

Michael Bancroft is a micaceous pottery instructor who discovered his love of clay in 2004. He feels his inspiration comes from his children’s grandmother, Mary Sedillo, and his grandmother, Emily Povijua, both of whom made pottery. He has taken and  instructed many art classes at the Poeh Cultural Center.


While also a skilled potter, Shawn Tafoya will demonstrate embroidery, another of his passions. Although a traditionalist in terms of materials and technique, his embroidery is strikingly innovative. Ideas for his work come from different sources, including nature, his Pueblo and other tribal groups, pop culture and his family’s art.

Letís Take a Look!
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
MIAC Curators Examine Your Treasures

MIAC Curators gather in the lobby of the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month awaiting whatever treasures may walk through the door. This is your opportunity to bring a family heirloom, something special from your collection, or a piece you know nothing about. Naturally, they prefer items from the American Southwest (in keeping with the museum’s focus), but they will check out anything you bring in.

Federal law prohibits curators from "appraising" any items, but they will direct you to appropriate resources. For more information, visit this page: http://indianartsandculture.org/lets-take-a-look.
